YHC was honored to Q at the newest AO F3 Cherokee has to offer. It was a dark and gloomy morning where YHC arrived a little early to do some recon on where to do the planned beatdown. The rain that was forecasted the night before held off and 8 HIMs where able to get some work in, with one coming in hot as we finished up the warm-or-rama!
QIC: Rest Stop
Number of Pax: 8
Pax Names: Alcoa, Pelosi, Duggar, Carmen San Diego, Wingman, Hurley, Deep Dish, and Rest Stop
FNG Names: N/A
Warm-O-Rama: We moseyed around the main parking, circled up and did the following:
SSHs – 10 IC
Imperial Walkers – 15 IC
Weed Pickers – 10 IC
Michael Phelps - OYO
As the PAX were finishing the Michael Phelps, Alcoa came in hot. He was complaining about Misty making him 20 miles last night causing him to oversleep and was able to get a few reps as the PAX finished the warm-up. BUT…Alcoa showed up!
The Thang: Next, we moseyed to YHC’s truck and got out the shorty blocks. We moseyed to the top end of the parking lot where YCH explained the following:
YHC arrived earlier and placed out 4 cones, supposed to be 25 yards apart. There is not football field, so these measurements were probably off.
With the blocks in hand, we ran to the far cone and did 100 SSHs (w/out the blocks). The PAX then ran back to the start, with the blocks. PAX did curls waiting on the Six. Next, we ran to the 3rd cone and did 75 Mountain Climbers (Kodiak Count), with hand on the block and back to the start. Next, we can to the 2nd cone and did 50 Squats (w/ block), and finished up with 25 Merkins at the 1st Cone (hands on block).
After a 10 second count, on to the next thing where we did CATCH ME IF YOU CAN. The PAX partnered up. Partner #1 would hold the block and start walking backwards around the big parking lot loop while Partner #2 did 10 Merkins. After the Merkins, Partner #2 would run and switch with his Partner. We did two full laps and about 200 Merkins, I think.
With about 10 minutes left, we did some 11s. We started w/ 10 Overheard Presses and ran about a quarter of the way of the parking lot and did 1 LBC and so on, until 6:10am, when we deposited the shortys.
With 5 minutes left, YHC led the PAX with some Dolly, Alcoa with more Merkins, Pelosi with something, Duggar w/ SSHs, and Carmen with Yeezies Van Trapts
COT: We discussed the upcoming 5k being put on by Geppetto and is his M on February 15th. Prayers for Legionnaire’s Sister, Sharapova’s M, Biebs’ daughter, and Prayers for our troops, politicians and country.
Naked Man Moleskin: Great time this morning and enjoyed the mumblechatter. It was a little more tame than compared to last Friday’s conversations, but a great time was had! It was not all just mumblechatter though, I think we all got a little stronger and pushed each other as well.
I thought Pelosi was going to kill YHC when I skipped Yellow Ledbetter on the playlist. It took me a while to realize that look of “I keel you” was meant for me! My initial thought was he was Dropkick Murphys fan! Now I know, the next playlist will be all Pearl Jam. Great time this morning, as it always is at the Crossroads! If you have never been to the newest AO in Cherokee, you are missing out!
Until next time, SYITG! Rest Stop out!
